"WebLogic gives us the building blocks that accelerate the delivery of new applications, enable the presentation of dynamic content, lower administration and management costs, and integrate with our legacy systems and third-party applications... The BEA platform has been a huge plus for us. It has allowed us to build systems with a functionality that we previously could not afford. But even more important than the cost, is the increased functionality that BEA provides. The strength of its Java implementation shortens delivery of new applications substantially and plays an important role in enabling us to provide a more personalized user experience."
